Florida Family to Provide a New View of Autism

For most of her life, Eve Walker tried to stay out of the spotlight. Self-conscious and shy, she dwelled on what other people thought of her.
After she had a daughter with autism, she felt like people stared at her when she went out and judged her child's behavior.
But six years of dealing with supermarket meltdowns and accidental injuries have helped Walker overcome her insecurity. Now, she wants to share what she has learned about children with autism and help people understand the disability.
On Sept. 16, she and her family will be featured on a special about autism on The Learning Channel.
"I see there is beauty, too," Walker said. "I want people to see the good side of autism."
